An interview with Kathy Kelly from Voices for Creative Nonviolence
On April 19th, 2013, I interviewed Kathy Kelly—a co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence, which is a campaign to end United States military and economic warfare. The website is VCNC dot org. Kathy has lived in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Yemen and one of the roles she will play at the convergence is to relay those experiences and give a human voice to the lived reality of people over seas who deal with drone surveillance and are murdered by drone attacks on a daily basis. Kathy, and many others, will be attending “Resisting Drones, Global War and Empire" convergence, April 26 - 28 in Syracuse, NY. (See the FaceBook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/540569232649914/?ref=22.)
In this interview, Kathy and I spoke about her role in Voices for Creative Nonviolence, her travels abroad where she met individuals and families hurt by drone warfare, the connections between the Military Industrial Complex and the Prison Industrial Complex, and her entry into the antiwar movement, among other topics.
We want to always try to understand what's happening from the point of view of the people who can't escape from these wars. I'm sure many military people also feel trapped.
